Don’t panic. I’m not your niece, Mary. I’m not really sure if we are related. Recently, a die-hard Republican I know told me he is distantly related to seven U.S. Presidents, including George Washington and Barack Obama.

I joked with him that I’m probably related to you, Mr. President, but then it dawned on me — My mother’s family is German and Swedish. My father’s is Scottish and Irish, so . . .

. . . can you send me more allowance? I spent the first $1200 on essentials, a small donation to Mr. Biden’s campaign, a T-shirt that says: “Person, woman, man, camera, TV, The Lincoln Project”, and some toys for my dogs.

I know you’re not a fan of dogs. Even a Golden Retriever would not be loyal to you.

Another $1200 would be quite nice. I need some new tires — Goodyear has a great deal right now.

Sincerely yours,

Ann G.
